Burn Ban in Place for Brookings County


At their June 15th meeting, the Brookings County Commission adopted Resolution #21-25, declaring a fire danger emergency in Brookings County and prohibiting open burning. Open burns are allowed only with a permit from the local fire chief. If a permit is obtained, dispatch must be notified at 605-692-2113 before the burn begins, and when the burn is extinguished. Recreational fires in backyard firepits are permitted if they are covered. The burn ban will remain in effect until rescinded by official action of the County Commission.
